12 Kinds Of Pastors [1]

Monday 13th July 2020 Devotion
Scripture:- 1st Timothy 6:1-12
Topic:- 12 Kinds Of Pastors [1]
Text:- Isaiah 2:14

I have come to discover 12 kinds of Pastors that are visible in the Church today. Though not all, but these twelve represent majority of Pastors leading Churches today. I hope you can find who you are among these twelve descriptions.

  1. Business Pastor:
    a. Description: Businessmen and women who seek the ministry simply as avenue to make money. They function as the Chief Executive Officers of their Churches. The Church is run with business principles. Their major emphasis is money, finance, Prosperity, how to make it. They are in absolute control of everything.
    b. Basic Motive: Gain and profit. The programmes are targeted at how much money is realised, using God, Church and Bible to make: money arid personally enriching themselves.
    c. Demerits: No heaven mindedness, disciples and godliness. They breed Christians who are greedy of gain, profit oriented, thieves and crooks. They engage in lying, fantastic promises and spurious prophesies .They apportion Church position to the highest bidder.
    d. Prospects: True repentance, freedom from financial lucre and restoration of balanced truth to the Church. Business Pastors have brought much bad image to the Church. See 1 Timothy 6:3-5; Isaiah 2:14; 56:10-11.
  2. Funky Pastor:
    a. Description: Worldly, carnal, ungodly Pastors who watered down the Gospel to please people. They dress anyhow, allow anything in the Church. They are immoral and sexual maniac who take advantage of people. Their messages are the Church liberty, ministry on the broadways, easy way to heaven and making you somebody in life.
    b. Basic Motives: Keep the people happy. Don’t offend them by telling them the truth. They exert influence and power over people in order to get their money. Youth and young people enjoy these kinds of Pastors.
    c. Demerits: No mention of sin, evil, hell or righteousness. The focus is miracle, blessing and breakthroughs. Secular talk shows are allowed. Immorality, extra ­marital affairs and premarital sex are overlooked all in the belief that God is a loving God. Funky Pastors have brought much shame to the Pastoral ministry and their name.
    d. Prospects: Genuine repentance and restitution, else. See 2 Timothy 4:3-4; Jeremiah 6:13.
  3. Vocational Pastor:
    Ezek34: 2, 3
    a. Description: They are in the ministry, not result of God’s call, but by the call of men. They Pastor as a hobby or past time. They love the honour and respect being given to Pastors.
    Tribal sentiments, ethnic bias, connection to authority, wealth, status And oratory power are what was used to make them Pastors. Educational qualifications and greasing of palms also figure here.
    b. Basic motive: To rule over others and to seen and respected by them. No vision, purpose and commission from the Lord. They therefore lord over people, using threats and position to oppress those who are genuinely called.
    c. Demerits: They are not concerned with anyone or the Church once their position is secured. They lead Church backward through secular management systems. They don’t train, develop or empower anyone. The Church is always malnourished and spiritually weak under such Pastors. Their ministrations are always devoid of God’s power and their sermons always make people sick. Vocational or honorary Pastors have caused much havoc for the Church today.
    d. Prospects: Seek the face of God as to His plan your life, resignation and functioning where God wants you.

Prayer Point:- Oh Lord God, break me, remold me to Your perfect image and servant of God indeed now by fire, in the name of Jesus Christ.

Have A Lovely Monday!

If you want to give your life to Christ; you want your sins forgiven; you want to become a child of God; you want to experience the realities of new birth; you want to make heaven;

Or you were once saved and fell along the line, and now you want to rededicate your life to Christ…

Then pray this short prayer of Faith

Say it loud and mean it:

“Lord Jesus, I surrender my life to you today. Forgive me my sins, wash me with your blood. I believe you died for me, on the third day you rose again that I may be justified. Right now, I believe that my sins are forgiven; I’m justified by your blood; I’m born-again; I’m saved; I’m a child of God; I’m free from the power of sin to serve the living God. Thank you Jesus for receiving me; thank you Jesus for restoring me; thank you Jesus for saving me.

Thank God for your soul. I congratulate you for the best decision of your life. For further details on how to grow in this new light, please click the CONTACT page or visit TACN or any bible believing church near you and ask for the pastor in charge.
